The Six Hottest Emerging Neighborhoods In the World's Greatest Cities: Atwater Village, Los Angeles

Just north of hipster central Silver Lake, there's a rising crop of slow-food restaurants, high-end bakeries, and organic grocers in one of the few L.A. neighborhoods where you can actually walk to a farmer's market.

Sweets for the Soul

WHERE TO EAT

Jane Choi, formerly the manager at Balthazar and Pastis in Manhattan, uses seared market fish and dandelion salad to lure Angelenos across the river to Canelé, while casual foodies can browse the organic market Atwater Village Farm, the mini Dean & DeLuca replica Bon Vivant Market Cafe, and the gourmet bakery Sweets for the Soul.

WHERE TO SHOP

Browse the vintage-vinyl store Jacknife Records & Tapes (323-661-4533) before heading next door to the used-book boutique Alias Books East.

WHERE TO DRINK

Unwind at the end of the day at Roost (323-664-7272), the popular after-filming dive bar—don't be surprised to spot an A-lister tucked into a dark booth.

WHERE TO STAY

A cab ride away, the Art Deco Sunset Tower Hotel remains a favorite of Hollywood hotshots, who linger in the poolside restaurant and clubby Tower Bar.
